He says as it related to marijuana:
"I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.'
He should have said this about poker.

And yet, he is willing to ask the Justice Department to completely ignore the Federal Law that states illegals who are in America must be deported. So for marijuana he won't get involved, but with a stroke of a pen he is ordering Eric Holder and Janet Napoletano NOT to enforce Federal Immigration law.
He has also used Executive orders to by pass Congress on two other issues.
You can't make this type of statement and turn around and do the shit he is doing and not be called on it. Simply put he doesn't care about poker, if he did, he would tell Holder to back off the online sites and/or put out an Executive Order to allow it.
Don't hold your breath folks.

Gags30poker 2017-03-25 20:04:52 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings many of those are breakeven at best, that's not a scam?
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 20:04:15 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings what about banks getting you to invest in market and charging high fees
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 20:02:42 @dDeoxyribo @JoeyWeissman @golferjosh market determines value and if someone is willing to pay then clearly that's what it's worth to them
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 20:02:27 @dDeoxyribo @JoeyWeissman @golferjosh said they'd pay you 2X for your house you wouldn't snap sell it?
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 20:02:13 @dDeoxyribo @JoeyWeissman @golferjosh you just bought your house for X. You're telling me if tomorrow someone knocked on your door and

RealKidPoker 2017-03-25 19:56:48 @DeepStackBMAC @CommerceCasino it's one event. Some people like it, others don't. If you don't like it, guess what... don't play! Haha.
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:56:09 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings *some people invest in poker for the same
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:55:58 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings they want the sweat and gamble of maybe hitting it big. People invest in poker for same
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:55:41 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings what's even better is that majority of people KNOW they can't beat slots and still play
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:55:21 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings plenty of people think they can win at slots, and still play
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:55:07 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @StakeKings are you inherently against casinos making customers think they can win
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:54:38 @dDeoxyribo @JoeyWeissman @golferjosh Joey might buy himself only f he thought he'd make money. Others may be buying for a sweat or gamble
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:52:47 @dDeoxyribo @JoeyWeissman @golferjosh well if he sells at 1.25 he's not worth 1.05 ducy
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:52:28 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @golferjosh the prices are clearly listed, and I don't think they're inherently "scams"
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:52:02 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @golferjosh but for some people they represent ways to buy action of famous pros for little money
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:51:41 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @golferjosh don't get me wrong, I think these staking sites are all horrible ways to spend your $
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:51:18 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @golferjosh I don't think the wording is scammy
Gags30poker 2017-03-25 19:51:08 @Protentialmn @JoeyWeissman @dDeoxyribo @golferjosh people ask others to invest in businesses all the time, many have bad plans and fail
